We needed a day of crafting.  It's been awhile since we've spent time creating with the Bettenhausens.  So I pinterested (is that a word?) St. Patrick's Day crafts.  First we cut out shamrocks out of green sponges and put seeds on top.  With water, we'll hopefully harvest a crop of small sprouts.  The other craft we made was a button rainbow in a green frame.  I thought they turned out AWESOME!  And everyone had a lot of fun.  Check it out:
Here's the whole crew creating and crafting and having fun!
Juice, Kotten Kandy, Key Lime Pie
Nut, Apple Pie and Marmalade
Key Lime Pie made a perfect rainbow!
Kotten Kandy was creative with green - and I love the monochromatic look!
Although Apple Pie was the youngest crafter, he created his art piece COMPLETELY by himself (and I think it turned out awesome!)
I couldn't resist posting a couple of pictures of Jelly Bean...
He is so expressive.  Check it out:
"Are you taking my picture?!  How dare you!"
"OK, I know I'm cute!"
I've missed crafting!  Glad we have best friends to play with and homeschool with!


  1. Squeee! So much fun, and love the bonus Jelly Bean pictures! (Also, this is Jenny - no idea why it's saying I'm unknown!)

  2. Hi Crafters,
    I saw this blog on a computer in Aspen, CO on Saturday. I thought about commenting from there, but decided to wait till getting home.
    Rainbows and shamrocks - colorful and fun - thanks to that little bit of Irish in us all!
    Love ya, Mil
